5-point checklist when planning student centered lesson for teenagers

Teaching YL and Teens
One of the main criteria for measuring the success of a lesson when we talk about the communicative approach is student centeredness.

Often, when preparing for our lessons, we feel overwhelmed with the amount of advice and opinion about how to go about this. Does ‘student-centred’ mean more pairwork? More guided discovery? Lots of speaking? Throwing away the coursebook completely?

In this session, we will look at a checklist which will give 5 clear guidelines not only on how to implement a student-centered approach in one lesson, but how to keep this pattern from lesson to lesson.
